Dude, Avatar shirt! Fuck yeah man, Tim & Jonas are my friends. We are all from Gothenburg here in Sweden. Ehh, you dont need my whole story, just loved seeing them on your shirt. Anyway, great videos mate.
Any updates on all your Harpactira species? Specifically other than the Pulchripes. I’m interested in the other species.
I just picked up an H.pulchripes sling at my local expo last weekend! Needless to say, I'm already in love with it. I know I will often be coming back to this video for tips, Lol.
Hello, Tom, may I know what's the maximum lifespan and size of this specie? And are they visible in the enclosure like GBB? Please reply. 🙂
Great video buddy
I'm getting a harpactira cafreriana soon and I was wondering if a 10 gallon tank about make a good home I have no problem buying a 5 gallon but I already have a 10 gallon
So cool, I have 2 H.Pulchripes now, my smallest 3-4th Instar molted maybe a week ago, I’m not sure I rarely see him/her But I saw him/her earlier today although small she hopefully is now Gold ( not that transparent looking brownish gold ) with the blue legs. He/She is only maybe 1” slightly bigger.The smaller has a burrow with 3 entrances/exits, stays in its burrow all the time, coming up with just the legs at the entrance waiting for food. The slightest movement of the container and then I won’t see it again for days to weeks. Super skittish and a pet hole as of now, hopefully (s)he will be less in its burrow when the T is bigger.
How strong is their venom?
My male H pulchripes just hooked out Sunday 7-29-18. He's now maybe 3.5" to 4". He was a 1" sling when I got him, which was on 1-4-18. The mature male loses a lot of his bright coloration, but until they hook out they are just as goodlooking as their female counterparts. I have several videos in a playlist for him on my channel. The lid on his enclosure was 81 degrees and the surface substrate was 78 degrees in his original cage. In his adult cage one side is 83 degrees and the other side is 74 degrees. My condo is kept at 68 degrees because my roommate has health issues. Sadly enough, I'm sending him out to a breeder but I got 2 interesting ones back in the trade. If the breeding is successful, all I asked for back was 3 slings with the breeder keeping the rest. They are a good second terrestrial, especially if your first one was something like a GBB or Lasiodora or something else a bit quick and pouncy on food. Mine can run like the wind but never once has thrown a threat posture at me, only at feeders that catch him by surprise. I always kept him on bone dry substrate with a water dish checked twice daily. Due to wicking from the web, I did get some mold and got him into a catch cup and disinfected the enclosure immediately. Fortunately enough, it was in just one area. You just GOTTA get one, worth every penny. Rehouse within a large tote within a bathtub with blocked drains at all times. Make sure they go down into the burrow before opening the cage!! They will if you tap the cage or shine a flashlight upon them. Feed them whenever they emerge to attack the water dish when you fill it or stick their feet out of the burrow in an ambush position.
Got a 3/4" H pulchripes sling for $40 at a reptile show yesterday. So excited to have one! Thank you for your videos on this species. Very helpful! ❤
Great video, wish I, a first time tarantula owner, had seen this before I was sold an H. pulchripes at the pet store. :/
Thank you for this info.
Sorry if this question has been answered before, but when you talk about the sizes of the tarantulas, do you go by bodysize or diagonal legspan? As always, great job on the video. Got an H.pulchripes sling today and your video has been (as always) a great source of information! Can´t wait for my little dude to grow and hopefuly turn out to be a dudette. So far it´s doing great! (The pre-killed mealworm I left in front of his corkbark is already gone :D). Thx and keep up the awesome work Tom! Cheers
Tom I must have watched your H pulchripes videos 10x I’ve recently bred the species and I’ll be posting the update after the egg sack is opened in another 6-7 days. These videos are what got me through the eaten males and the doubts ahaha very informative and entertaining content man.
Very useful and informative video. I just got my 3 H.Pulripes slings that turned L3 like one and a half week ago. I tried offering cricket legs but none of them seem to be interested. I keep one corner moist and offered cork bark for hide. Do you know when do they start eating after turning L3? Thanks a lot
1 of those H. Pulchripes are top of the list to get…absolutely love the colours (who doesn't right?!) Started a new job for the first time in 20yrs this month…been crazy busy. Glad to check in and see a few new videos Tom!
Just subscribed!😏Hey Tom Thank you for the great videos! I do not have a tarantula, and right now I honestly do not even think about entering the hobby, ‘cause I'm struggling with my arachnophobia. But watching your videos really helps me a lot, because they are very educational and informative. You're definitely one of my favorites, along with "Exotic Liar" and "The Darl Den"!However, I do not understand why you only have 6745 subscribers! By the way, very nice to hear or see your family in between.☺️ Many YouTubers would cut out such scenes, or even make their videos in an "isolated" location. I'm looking forward to many more nice videos. PS: Maybe a bit late, but I wish you and your family all the best for 2018!😊
Hey Tom, this is a great way to tackle the T's; doing it by the genus and breaking them down a bit. Awesome video man!
Beautiful T’s and great video mate
wow your T's are all so pretty loved your video <3
Yes this is a video I been hoping you would make just a wealth of knowledge. I have fallen in love with harpactira
What Beautiful T's! Definitely need to get us some of these! Also Tom we finished the YouTube Rewind for Tarantula channels and we included a special shoutout and set of clips just for you! Please check it out! We're looking forward to our other collaboration very soon!!
Great video especially since you introduced me to H. pulchripes. Also really cool that you included 3 other Harpactira sp. I will if space & money allow, get more sp in the future. On our latest local expo, i got some baboon slings from a breeder friend of mine. I got 3 marshalli, 2 sanderi, 2 darlingi & 1 Idiothele mira small juvenile. Although they're not Harpactira I'm over the top happy with these small ones. Take good care of yourself buddy. ❤🤗🕷
Great information, Tom! I think I say this every time, but I love the webs! :~)
Great content buddy always like your videos !
Love the videos! I love seeing updates and husbandry videos!
another great video! and right when I get a H. cafreriana not much on them, good to know you keep them the same as the rest of the Harpactira genus
Avatar are the best
Tom have you run across the T. Seladonia(sp?) at all? Correct me if I'm wrong but from what I've read it's the unicorn of new world T's. The adults are stunningly beautiful
I always take away little things from your videos Mr Moran hehe… Never stop these videos my friend ☺️👍🕷🕷🕷🕷🕷
Great video as always. I love the H. Pulchripes. It's by far my favorite T. So beautiful 😁🤗. Have you made a husbandry video on the P. Irminia Tom?? I couldn't find one. Tyfs, God bless you
awesome video bro
Beautiful Ts! I am definitely putting these on my wish list! I suppose since I jumped into owning an H. Lividum I should be able to do well with these I think lol 😍😍😍
Just what I needed! Planning on getting a H.pulchripes but they’re so expensive here, so gotta make sure everything’s right. Good info!
My Pulchripes is a complete jerk with a terrible attitude, but luckily she’s pretty, so I don’t hold it against her. Also, nice use of the word behove, A+ 😂
Another awesome vid! This one will definitely help me with my new h. pulchripes. Thanks Tom!
great vid again mate. I got 2 H pulchripes slings and both seem to be doing great, though mine do hide quite a but or well 1 does the other has done quite some webbeing already (only have that one 3 days)
Gosh, I miss keeping! <3 these videos, as always, huge thanks for sharing them. You're information is always spot on, easily understandable without being condescending towards the newer keepers out there. Miss the hobby but still watch regularly.
Hey Tom, Riaan from South Africa here. unfortunately, those are illigal to keep here, but they most certainly are fascinating spiders. I am not sure about all species, but Hamiltoni is actually a dedicated borrower in nature.
I agree with all of this very good vid tom enjoyed it as per usual !!! My h Pulchripes is all sealed away and should be molting very soon !! Also just got a molt from my p. SP rufus very excited !!
